The huge amount of garbage floating in the world's oceans is definitely a big problem, but ideas like the Lady Landfill Skyscraper hope to offer a glimpse of how the future of a cleaner world might be achieved.

Featuring a monolithic design reminiscent of towering ocean surface stalactites, the Lady Landfill Skyscraper is a remarkable multipurpose structure capable of recycling garbage and providing residential and commercial space. Instead of being stationary, however, the Lady Landfill Skyscraper also has the ability to use the garbage it harvests to propel itself to new locations.

With forward-thinking designs like this, it doesn't seem too unlikely that the day may come when entire populations of humans take the seas in towering garbage-eating icebergs just like these.
